CIU Seminary Dean Publishes Handbook on Paul’s Letters

June 17, 2013

A new handbook on the Apostle Paul’s letters written by the dean of Columbia International Seminary & School of Ministry is getting good reviews. “Interpreting the Pauline Letters” by Dr. John Harvey is the inaugural volume in a “Handbooks for New Testament Exegesis” series from Kregel Publications.

While the book explores the setting and theological themes of each letter, it also discusses strategies for communicating the central truths of Paul’s first-century messages to a 21st century audience.

The book is written with seminary and graduate students in mind, but the studious lay person will also benefit from it.

Dr. Ralph Enlow, the president of the Association for Biblical Higher Education (ABHE), says that while “Interpreting the Pauline Letters” is analytical and scholarly, John Harvey “demonstrates that true biblical scholarship is not an end, but a means by which to further the purposes for which Scripture has been given: teaching, reproof, correction, and training in righteousness.”
